I have a passion for working with wood, so I am very carefull not to let it become a job. If it becomes a job, I will enjoy it less. I started working as a carpenter in high school (by chance) and found I loved it. Over the years, I worked for several contractors and gained valuable skills. Eventually, I started to veer into finer work and really fell in love with making furniture pieces and stuff for others. I would rather spend 12 hours in my shop making somethign for someone else than just about anything else. After 25 years of effort, I finally have a little extra space and my shop is starting to develop into a more usable space.

I have a lovely wife of almost 21 years. 3 kids of 21, 18 and 16.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Welcome to LJ from another Hoosier. This is best place on the net to share and learn from a great bunch of friendly, talented, helpful woodworkers. I’ll ditto what Tom said especially the addictive part.

I don’t know. Woodworking has become my job and I think I love it even more. Nothing like being able to do what you love and make a career out of it. A friend of mine once said “if work was fun, it would be called fun.”. So I guess I fun every day!

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself just about 2 years ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…
I apologize for the late welcome but I am currently serving overseas and don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands.

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Have your say...
